Day 19 - Single Leg Deadlift

Exercise Description
Stand up straight and lift one leg a few inches off the ground. Bend both knees slightly, bend at the waist, (keeping spine neutral) and with the 'off ground' leg rising behind you, reach down to the floor with your hands. Return to upright.

Options & Modifications
Rest 'off ground' foot on floor between reps. Carry no weights for ease, weights that challenge you to make it harder. Again – 50 total or 50 per leg – your choice, but challenge yourself!

Bonus Tip
Hold onto a counter top/chair back etc with one hand if you're struggling to balance, or have weak knees. Ensure your spine says neutral – look after your back!!!
